Indian presence absent

...from the ICC Awards shortlist, that is: outside of Dinesh Karthick, no Indian has apparently made it to the top five in any category. Kumble's take on the anomaly:
"We haven't played many matches in the last season. It (also) shows that we need to perform better," said Kumble, who was among the 15 shortlisted for the Test Player of the Year award before fizzling out.

  • Kumble does have a point. Compare the number of test matches that India plays in a year with that played by teams like England and Australia...they play double the number of matches and hence have a better chance for the awards.
